Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord. Proverbs 127:3
Indiana Right to Life is dedicated to our mission of protecting the God-given right to life of the unborn,
believing that all human life is valuable from the moment of fertilization, because each human life is created in the image of God. We protect life at every stage through compassionate action by supporting families, education, and legislative advocacy. We celebrate life and provide outreach opportunities so that others can learn the truth.
Indiana Right to Life facilitates positive conversation and donations to key initiatives. We cultivate a culture that protects and celebrates life; one that educates rather than shames. Our mission is to protect the right to life, especially of unborn children, through positive education, compassionate advocacy, and promotion of positive alternatives to abortion.
Planned gifts are considered very valuable with regards to carrying on the mission and meeting the future needs of Indiana Right to Life, providing long term organizational sustainability.

Examples of Gifts Accepted
Annuities. You can donate your annuity to Indiana Right to Life to reduce the size of your taxable estate and receive an applicable charitable deduction. Alternatively, you may list Indiana Right to Life as the beneficiary.
Beneficiary. You can name Indiana Right to Life as the beneficiary of your annuity, individual retirement accounts, workplace retirement plans, and life insurance.
Bequests. Bequests make up the majority of planned gifts. You can make a bequest to Indiana Right to Life through your will or estate plan, allocating a specific amount of money to give after passing, such as a lump sum or a percentage of your total wealth. You may also choose to give the remainder of your estate to Indiana Right to Life after all other named bequests are paid.
Charitable Lead Trust. A charitable lead trust (CLT) is an irrevocable trust that allows you to provide current income generated by assets in the trust to Indiana Right to Life. When the trust terminates after the period specified in the trust agreement, the trust beneficiaries you’ve named (children, grandchildren, etc.) receive the assets.
Charitable Remainder Trust. A charitable remainder trust (CRT) is a trust in which you place funds or assets into an irrevocable trust with an independent trustee. The donor or other designated income beneficiaries receive income from the trust for a specified period of time after which the trust assets pass on to Indiana Right to Life.
Donor Advised Funds. A donor advised fund (DAF) is a giving vehicle that allows you
to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants to Indiana Right to Life from the fund over time. You can contribute to the fund.
Life Insurance. Life insurance is an excellent tool for making charitable gifts for many reasons,
providing an “amplified” gift. Through a relatively small annual cost (the premium), a benefit far in excess of
what would otherwise be possible can be provided to Indiana Right to Life. A gift of the policy can be made to Indiana Right to Life with a corresponding tax deduction for a portion of the cash value. Premiums paid to Indiana Right to Life are generally tax deductible. If the outright gift of a policy is not possible, Indiana Right to Life can be a beneficiary on the policy.
Publicly Traded Securities. These are stocks and bonds traded on a public exchange.
Qualified Charitable Distributions. A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is a withdrawal from an individual retirement arrangement (IRA) that’s made directly to Indiana Right to Life. IRA account holders who are at least age 70.5 can contribute some or all your IRA’s to Indiana Right to Life.

We are relentlessly working to end all abortions in Indiana through an incremental strategy grounded in
a realistic view of how the federal courts are ruling on abortion. We are hopeful that one of the many Indiana pro-life laws being challenged in the courts will result in the overturning of Roe vs. Wade and lead to a new day when Indiana can end abortion forever.
